Seeing migration as an opportunity, Scalabrini Centre offers development and welfare programs to the migrant and local communities of Cape Town, South Africa. We use a holistic approach that considers all basic needs and human rights when providing assistance. With a team of 26 persons and the revolving help of about 40 volunteers, we offer programs dealing with welfare, training, and assistance with access to local services through referrals to schooling, bank accounts, healthcare, legal representation, qualification accreditation, and social assistance. We receive around 2,000 people each month accessing our services. We take our name from John Bapist Scalabrini, the Bishop of Placenza who founded the order in 1887 to care for the welfare of migrants.
